Here is the Google Doodle for Josef Frank:

Josef Frank Google Logo 2010

This may be the first person Google has placed a logo for with only a really small Wikipedia entry. The entry even talks about the Google Doodle:

Frank's designs were featured on Google's homepage on July 15, 2010. This is the anniversary of his birthday. Google picked Josef Frank's designs because they have similar objectives: innovation and love.
